NEED FOR CREATING HEALTH CLUB

Childhood and adolescence form the most joyful period of an individual’s life. They are the times of immense energy, self discovery and exploration of the world. They can also be fraught with feelings of isolation, loneliness and confusion, that can be due to various factors relating to the physical, social, emotional, mental illness of the younger generation. Schools, families and communities need to play a positive and responsible role in bringing up young children who are going to be the future scientists, politicians and rulers of India, in a healthy environment which would enable each one to maximize their potential.

In order to create an awakening interest for the forgotten health because of strenuous pre occupation with mind among the school and college going adults the Department of Biochemistry felt that a comprehensive adolescent health programme should be initiated through a Health club. Hence the Department has  launched this health club on February 2009 in the name of late Janaba Fathima Akhtar Sahiba who was the first chairman and correspondent of this esteemed institution and wife of our beloved founder Late Janab Justice Basheer Ahmed Sayeed Sahib.

Objectives of the Health Club

  • To emphasize on the importance of physical activity
  • To tap the local resources in the community to arrange informative talks on health and hygiene.
  • To create help line on health within the college to provide tips on managing stress, coping up with emotional & social behavior and to clarify misconceptions regarding communicable and non communicable diseases and Adolescent health.
  • To inculcate awareness on healthy diet and the positive ways of healthy living and life style among the students.
